Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Join hands and circle to the left go walkin round
Walk around that corner, see saw around your own
Those men star by the right, turn it once around tonight
Allemande left that corner, come on back and weave the ring
Pick me up on your way down when you're blue and all alone
Dosado go once around, promenade that lady home
You may be their pride and joy, but they'll find another toy
When you tumble to the ground, pick me up on your way down


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around will do
Dosado go once around you know
Do a curlique my friend, now you'll scoot back and then
Boys run to the right, a right & left thru and turn the girl
Slide thru and swing the corner lady round and round
Do an allemande left new corner, promenade where you belong
You may be their pride and joy, but they'll find another toy
When you tumble to the ground, pick me up on your way down


TAG

As you tumble to the ground, pick me up on your way down

Pick Me Up On Your Way Down
 
 

You were mine for just a while.
Now you're puttin' on the style.
And you never once looked back,
At your home across the tracks.

You're the gossip of the town,
But my heart can still be found,
Where you tossed it on the ground:
Pick me up on your way down.

Pick me up on your way down,
When you're blue and all alone.
When that glamor starts to bore you,
Come on back where you belong.
You may be their pride and joy,
But they'll find another toy.
Then they'll take away your crown:
Pick me up on your way down.

They have changed your attitude,
Made you hearty and so rude.
Your new friends can take the blame:
Underneath you're just the same.
When you learn these things are true,
I'll be waitin' here for you:
As you tumble to the ground,
Pick me up on your way down.

Pick me up on your way down,
When you're blue and all alone.
When that glamor starts to bore you,
Come on back where you belong.
You may be their pride and joy,
But they'll find another toy.
Then they'll take away your crown:
Pick me up on your way down.

Then they'll take away your crown:
Pick me up on your way down.

Lyrics by Harlan Howard.
Recorded by Charlie Walker; Patsy Cline; Jerry Lee Lewis; others.
